The box contains a 2A charger which charges the battery within 2 hours.The battery of Meizu M2 Note would last you for One Whole Working Day.There is only a Super Saving Mode that helps you get a lot more juice from your battery.

We have No words for the performance,In day to day Usage the M2 Note performs smooth like butter.The Ui is well-optimized. Though the device has only around 400-500MB RAM available , but the performance is smooth. The device can run High-End games however there might me be little hiccups while playing.The Device doesn’t heat up much. There are three modes- Power Saving, Balanced and Performance, which you can choose upon your needs. The device didn’t lag in power saving mode too. Yes, you heard it right, Flyme is really well-Optimized.
Nothing special to say about sound quality. There is a single speaker at bottom and the sound quality is decent enough to make you satisfied. I wouldn't say it's great but it's good. You can enjoy your songs with this mobile.The Cellular Call Quality is Good.Coming to the Audio Output via the headphone jack,it is There are some presets available so that you can tweak it to the best according to your taste.We tested it with Jbl T100A Earphones the sound output is Pretty Good.It also has a feature/option called as Dirac HD Sound.
So,we tested benchmarks though it's not important that if your device hasn't got good benchmarks score then performance will not be good. But still, if we talk about Benchmarks we have got a score of 30K, that's enough. When you open benchmarks app, it ask you to perform benchmarks whether in Performance mode or Power Saving Mode, we did this benchmarks in performance mode. It scored 30,667 on AnTuTu Benchmark v5.7 which is good.
Overall, device is really worth for 10K.At the price of 10k you get an Awesome display,Good battery,Decent camera,Smooth performance and other special features in Flyme OS makes the handset more worth. What we think is,
Go for the device if you want a Value For Money Phone.We would like to Thank Anurag Singh for the Review.
